I went out a week after the shootings to visit my daughter and took some photos of the memorials.

For anyone interested, I put together a picture tribute that can be seen at the following Flickr links:

Nice of you to put this up.

I'm not an alum but have been backing Hokie football for so long I might as well be. Been to Blacksburg many times for games and have many friends and family who are grads. Blacksburg is such a wonderful place.

Tragic

I've been through the campus and it was all laid out to me how it went down...sends chills up my spine just thinking about it.

I work in the New River Valley, and participated in memorials in '07, '08 and last year. I visited the campus yesterday afternoon where they recently erected "bench memorials" for the survivors, most of whom were shot and others injured by either jumping from windows or stepped upon. Prayers are offered to the families of the victims, both living and dead. Thank you for remembering.
